Circulating Materials

Our book collection is made up of over 110,000 volumes on a wide variety of topics. In addition to curriculum materials, including textbooks, workbooks, activity kits, and other teaching and learning materials, there is also fiction, as well as young people’s books, a collection including both fiction and nonfiction books written for children and chosen to accommodate different age groups and reading levels.

Mahoney Library also collects DVDs and audio CDs at the request of faculty and in support of the curriculum. The collection includes documentaries, educational videos, and feature films.

Course Reserves

Faculty may request that specific books or articles (usually required or supplemental course reading material) be available on a reserve basis, meaning that the borrowing period is limited so that more students can view the material within a short period of time. Course reserves are available on the main floor at the Circulation Desk.

Laptops in the Library

The library has recently added twenty (20) laptops to the reserve collection. This means that students, staff, and faculty who have a SEU ID with a barcode from the library can be checked out for use. They must remain in the library or Academic Success Center, and have a two (2) hour time limit due to battery restrictions.
